Who would have thought that a dodgy DIY paint job could cause tension between you and your loved one?
A survey recently conducted by Finish paints found that good quality paint really is a top priority on a renovator’s list. Of the respondents, 90 percent believed that an interior paint job should be a DIY task, and a staggering two-thirds of them were also willing to paint the exterior.
Whilst colour was also a prime consideration when selecting paint (particularly with females), a long-lasting finish was amongst the top concerns.
Results have found that 69 percent of homeowners wait between five and eight years before changing the colour of their walls with a refreshing coat of paint.
With this in mind, one of Australia’s oldest paint brands, Taubmans, has manufactured the Finish paint range. On top of durability, the range has also covered heath concerns – namely protection against mould, mildew and fungus. In particular, the inclusion of Microban in Finish paints provides protection from the potential growth of bacteria on your walls, including E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria, and in turn, has the certified tick of approval from the Asthma Council.
It goes without saying that the environment is an integral consideration in paint products, so Finish paints have been developed with a water-based formula that is low odour and emits less Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
To satisfy your DIY home renovation needs, the Finish paint range can be found exclusively at Home Timber and Hardware stores. With the choice of interior and exterior, glossy and low sheen paints, you have no excuse to add a bit of colour into your life with a new coat of paint!
